Post Marine Epoxy - Maintaining Your Boat
Marine Epoxy - Maintaining Your Boat
by: Hugh Lunn

Epoxy is a very useful substance that is a liquid or paste until mixed with a hardener. Once the liquid is mixed with hardener it will start to harden and go off. Epoxy has a number of uses, including on circuit boards, repairs around the home, and on boats. Epoxy is a very important material for use around water because of its waterproof properties. Many projects require epoxy to waterproof and strengthen. Marine Epoxy is ideal for boat repairing procedures.

West System manufacturers a wide range of different epoxy substances for different purposes, including marine epoxy resin and boat epoxy. While they are separate they are liquids, when a certain proportion of epoxy resin and hardener are mixed together this cures to form a very hard substance at room temperature. The resulting material is water resistant and will stick to virtually anything. This makes epoxy the material of choice for applications requiring waterproof and resistance to chemicals. The strong bond is also beneficial for boats because it will withstand all the elements of nature. West System produces a number of different hardeners which will make it possible to create the perfect mixture for your requirements. West System epoxy resin can bond very well with wood, fibreglass and many other composite materials.

Although there are plenty of other epoxy products available on the market the ones offered by West System are seen as being superior for marine uses. They have been created specifically for use in the marine industry, and have been sold all over the world for longer than 33 years now. Thousands of boats have benefited from products made by West System, and will last much longer as a result of this. West System Epoxy is available in Europe, Asia, and America.

West System is made by ATL Composites and they put a lot of time and effort into continuing to develop this exciting technology. The epoxy is used for many applications and although it was designed specifically for the marine industry it’s also in use for the civil engineering, industrial, transport and automotive industries. Epoxy resin is extremely useful for many applications because of the ease of transportation, the hardness and the durability of the substance when it is cured. Epoxy is also very light weight which makes it perfect for the automotive and marine industry.

Ever since 1977 ATL has had the licence to manufacture West System Epoxy products in Australia and New Zealand. These products are very popular in both Australia and New Zealand and there are dealers all over the country. This means that the products are easily available to anyone who might want them, and there is also local help and support should anyone run into troubles.

Over the last 27 years ATL Composites, the owner of the West System licence has expanded significantly. Now they have entered Asia and their products are becoming a hit there too. It’s possible to buy epoxy from West System in China, Malaysia and Thailand. For more details visit to
